The Vampire Diaries star and Fifty Shades of Grey frontrunner just Instagrammed the REAL reason that him and his co-star split - photo evidence that there was someone else on the scene! Get a load of this:
Fortunately for Smolder-holder, its hard for us to be that mad with him when the recipient of his love crimes appears to be a kitty as cute as this one! And this only serves as more proof that Somerhalder doesn't need to take his shirt off to capture our hearts!
In all seriousness though, Somerhalder posted the photo with the caption "Being a dad... #GMB =Grown Man Business;)" And while the thesp was presumably only taking about being a cat-daddy, it does ring true to rumors that Ian split with Nina because of their ten year age gap and their different opinions about settling down and hardcore commitment.
I'm pretty sure that there's a lovely woman out there for Ian, who'd settle down with him and be his perfect cat-mommy. Would you be willing to take on that role? Sound off below!
